RAD 305A: Interventional Radiology Clerkship

Open to visitors. Interventional radiology (IR) has become integral to the practice of modern medicine. In 2013, the American Board of Medical Specialties recognized IR as a primary specialty distinct from diagnostic radiology. Subsequently, the ACGME approved the formation of a new IR residency training program ( http://www.sirweb.org/clinical/IR_DR_cert.shtml), which has begun at Stanford. This 2 or 4 week elective introduces medical students to image-guided, minimally invasive vascular and nonvascular interventions and is appropriate for students considering residency training in IR as well as those interested in learning more about the field in general. Students will be exposed to a broad range of IR procedures, including interventional oncology, peripheral vascular (venous and arterial), genitourinary, gastrointestinal, and pediatric interventions. This elective provides students experience in basic IR skills such as vascular access, placement of venous access catheters and ports, more »

Students will be exposed to a broad range of IR procedures, including interventional oncology, peripheral vascular (venous and arterial), genitourinary, gastrointestinal, and pediatric interventions. This elective provides students experience in basic IR skills such as vascular access, placement of venous access catheters and ports, and image-guided biopsies and drain placement. Students are encouraged to take part in more advanced procedures such as chemoembolization, radioembolization, and TIPS. Our service operates like a surgical subspecialty and students are expected to be an integral part of the IR team and actively participate in the pre-procedure evaluation and post-procedure care of our patients. Students may attend various departmental and interdepartmental conferences. Interested students are encouraged to give a short presentation on an interesting case at the end of the rotation.
